Hundreds of shoppers flocked to the Wausau Center Mall and to the shops in Rib Mountain to wrap up their holiday shopping.

The parking lots in both places were packed.

Patience and awareness of what is going on around you are key to making sure you're safe while hitting the stores these last few days of the holiday season.

"Be mindful in parking lots of little kids running around," says Deputy Ben Shope with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department. "Just slow down; find your parking spot; stay off your cell phones."

Shope also adds it is important to make sure none of your big buys are blocking your mirrors or vision while driving.
